throwers, pickers and hookers…

Hilary recently started a new knitting group called Throwers, Pickers and Hookers.  It meets at our shop on the first Wednesday of the month from 7-9pm.  And it meets at various other Wicker Park locations on the third Wednesday of the month. All are welcome.

Here are a few shots from our first gathering at the shop.  Thanks to everyone who came!


Our next gathering is tonight at Small Bar (2049 West Division).

Join this group on Ravelry to stay updated.

more pretty projects…

Joanna has been making lots of lovely things recently, including this Tea Leaves Cardigan she made for her daughter.  It fits perfectly!  Rather than fastening it with buttons as the pattern suggested, Joanna chose a great twig shawl pin by Jul.  The yarn is Madelinetosh DK (composition book grey).


Jen completed this Ingenue sweater awhile ago, but I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of her when she wore it into the shop the other day.  It was knit with Malabrigo Twist (green gray).  Looks great!


Janet brought by her gorgeous fair isle hat (En Blekksprut), and Hilary modeled it.  The yarn is Road To China Light by Fibre Co.


Beth has been teaching Crochet Classes at the shop recently, and she made this great infinity cowl for us to display.  It took 3 skeins of Rowan Lima.  And it’s embellished with a crocheted flower made from Louet Linen.


Kristen shared with me this darling photo of her baby boy, Tobey.  He’s all wrapped up in a blanket made with Dream In Color Classy.  Adorable!  The pattern is part of Blue Sky Alpacas’ Three Piece Baby Set.


The shop occasionally hosts special events, book signings, trunk shows, and sales. Private events can also be arranged at the shop by request.

Perhaps you'd like to have a birthday party centered around a knitting lesson. Or a baby shower during which everyone learns to knit a square for a baby blanket. Or a corporate networking event that features knitting instruction. Or a book club that encourages participants to knit while discussing the book. Nina: a well-knit shop is available for these and other special events.
